Care Gravel Light

This is a very beautiful plant, I had it in my 100 liter community tank with no CO2 and no gravel additives, just water fertilization. I believe it grew well this way because it has roots that grow out of the stem. It grows runners, mine had about one a week. Also, this plant is very hardy, I got rid of it in a spring in my back yard about a year ago. It made it through the drought and the snow. So now it's back in my tank.
